F. Our Response Today
We believe in Jesus the Messiah as God’s Word for mankind, God’s personal visit from above into our world. And we believe Jesus’ wonderful works to be God’s testimony to Jesus as His presence with us in this world. We, therefore, thank God for Jesus and for His wonderful ministry of healing.
Moreover, we thank God that through His Spirit He has inspired prophets and apostles to share His Word with us in Scriptures, and that throughout the centuries He has preserved His Word for all people. His Word has been preserved in the Holy Bible, in what you may know as the Tawrat, the Zabur, the Writings of the Prophets and the Holy Injil of Jesus the Messiah. Praise God, these Scriptures are God’s Word which He has preserved for us throughout the centuries as true, uncorrupted and unabrogated Scriptures!
In the Injil (“the Good News”) of Jesus we have eyewitness accounts of Jesus the Messiah’s own apostles and other disciples about Jesus’ wonderful works. From the time of Jesus onwards, they have served as signs of God’s grace and mercy, signs that prove, in the words of Jesus’ apostle in the Holy Injil, God is love (1 John 4:8) and cares for all people and all of His creation.
Moreover, Jesus’ wonderful works are signs for you today. You need not panic, fear, despair. He invites you to turn to Him with your prayers of thanksgiving and with your petitions for His help in your hour of sickness and suffering or any other need. Jesus is alive!
Just as significantly He also invites you to ponder the words of David, His great prophet and king, and to confess your sins: “Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.” (Psalm 32:1,2)
As God’s Word, He not only guides us but also heals, redeems and purifies us.
In the following chapters we will take a closer look at these great signs of Jesus.
